Welcome to the GCSE Options section of our website. We're having to run our options process a little differently this year and this section of our website is a big part of that.

We'll be running a live stream on 10th February at 6.30pm, which replaces our usual in person event.

At the same time we'll be launching a number of subject information videos to help you decide which option subjects you wish to take.

Within the menu, you will also find a link to submit a question, in case you have any queries about the process or one of our subjects.

GCSE Options Process

When our students begin Year 9 they embark on a very important phase of their education, namely the three years to GCSE (Key Stage 4).The pathway booklet will give you an overview of the Key Stage 4 curriculum and details about the individual subjects that students are able to study. The majority of time for a Key Stage 4 student is spent on the Core Curriculum. It includes English, Mathematics, Science, Religious Studies, Physical Education and Personal, Social and Health Education (including Citizenship, Careers and Work Experience). Some students may also have a modern foreign language as a compulsory subject. The options curriculum takes upmost of the rest of the time and here students will choose either Geography or History in order to be eligible for the English Baccalaureate as well as choosing 2 or 3 additional options from an extensive range of subjects, dependent on the pathway they follow. Many of the subjects continue from Key Stage 3, but some new subjects such as Business Studies, Health & Social Care and Sociology also become available. In order to best support our students, achieve their full academic potential we have developed a pathway system. Families will be advised which pathway we feel best suited to your child’s learning.

The deadline for completing your options is Monday 1st March 2021.
